Harry and superclown2,
I strongly believe that G is cheating and behaving unfairly to boost its bottom line at site-owner's expense. Why should I hope for them to keep doing it?
And I don't like one company to be able to play god by controlling this much of the internet. It never ends good. No one audits them, they just say 'trust us.' Ummmmm, I don't trust them and we shouldn't have to trust them. I am not saying that the government should write the algo, but let's have an independent party see what's going on. The internet is too big and too important to essentially be controlled by one entity.
Google was one of the cheerleaders against Microsoft back then and they didn't wait until "someone one day would build a better OS." IE was free as well, and no one forced people to buy Windows.
